Informatica Enterprise Data Integration

One of the main strengths of Informatica Enterprise Data Integration is its performance. If your business requirements include processing of huge volumes of data, then Informatica is strongly recommended over other tools. I would recommend Informatica over Talend.On the other hand, if your business primarily works on Apple machines, Informatica Enterprise Data Integration is a resounding NO. Running Informatica on a VM or a Remote Desktop completely kills its efficiency.

SharePlex

SharePlex really shines when set alongside GoldenGate. The licensing costs of the two products would appear to place them in entirely different ballparks yet they perform nearly identically in practice.SharePlex is suitable for heterogenous replication of one database to another. The list of targets is ever increasing, with support for all major RDBMS vendors as well as support for popular NoSQL and JSON replication.SharePlex is effective when replicating from on-premise to cloud. Whether that's migrating data, creating a high-availability presence in a public or private cloud, or populating a data mart, it does the job quite well.

Pros

Informatica Enterprise Data Integration

  • Transformation speed.
  • Supports a multi-User development environment.
  • A fast learning curve.

SharePlex

  • It is a light weight service that is easily configured and changed with the use of simple text files that define source tables and target tables. You have complete control of adding or removing tables to the configuration without interfering with other already configured tables.
  • It comes complete with utilities to synchronize data and to repair the data should it ever get out of synchronization. It also comes with an independent monitoring system that alerts admins should any errors occur.
  • Technical support is excellent. The support team is very responsive to issues. When there is an issue one of the engineers will take ownership of the problem and follow through until a solution is provided.
  • It is versatile for maintenance. The admin has control over each of the services used to replicate data. Any of the services can be stopped and restarted throughout the replication process to allow for maintenance or troubleshooting of the replication process. There are a multitude of parameter options available for controlling behavior of the replication process.

Cons

Informatica Enterprise Data Integration

  • It needs additional hardware.
  • Lots of windows sometimes reduce your focus.
  • It would be better to have a more compact design with the ability to aim toward specific topics.

SharePlex

  • When first introduced the Change Data Capture process was awkward. Each subsequent release has improved the process.
  • Sometimes the Shareplex monitoring service in Foglight gets overly aggressive in sending out error notifications and can end up spamming the admins with email alerts for one problem. We have had to tone that down.

Positives;- Multi User Development Environment- Speed of transformation- Seamless integration between other Informatica products.Negatives;- There should be less windows to maintain developers' focus while using. You probably need 2 big monitors when you start development with Informatica Power Center.- Oracle Analytical functions should be natively used.- E-LT support as well as ETL support.

Support is very responsive. They take ownership of the problems and see them through to the finish. When a bug is found they work towards developing testing and making the fix available to us to solve the problem.

Alternatives Considered

Informatica Enterprise Data Integration

I've really only used Informatica as an ETL developer
Brandon Fitzpatrick profile photo

SharePlex

At the time we did our proof of concept (2011), Shareplex was up and running within a couple of hours. The Goldengate techs were unable to get their product to work. Pricing for Shareplex was half of what Oracle quoted. Goldengate did not include monitoring or compare/repair utility (additional charge for that capability)

Return on Investment

Informatica Enterprise Data Integration

  • It works seamlessly with other Informatica products (i.e. Metadata Management, Data Quality).
  • Since data is read and written through the network, when you cannot perform E-LT you'll need more hardware.
  • Good for a multi-user development environment.

SharePlex

  • Shareplex allows us to have a near real-time reporting database and we have been able to improve our reporting capabilities eliminating the negative impact on our OLTP systems.
